Rob might be the Kardashian with the lowest profile, but it seems like he has the biggest heart after he has offered to make an incredible sacrifice for his sister Khloé's on-off significant other, Lamar Odom.

The former NBA star is reportedly in a 'health crisis' after his near-fatal overdose at a Las Vegas brothel earlier this month and his organs are so damaged by the incident that he is currently on dialysis.

Luckily, Odom has a strong bond with many members of the Kardashian clan and reportedly Rob has stepped up to the plate to offer the 35-year-old a kidney if he requires a transplant. The Daily Mail reports that:

"Rob is willing to do whatever it takes to help Lamar recover. If that means donating a kidney then so be it, Rob has a big heart and he's willing to step up to help his friend."

Despite his good intentions, Rob, 28, still needs to undergo tests to determine whether he and his buddy Lamar are a match for the invasive procedure.

While this would be a major act of altruism on Rob's behalf, it will come as no surprise to anyone who has been following the sock designer's social media accounts.

Rob Kardashian was the first member of his family to break the silence on Lamar's overdose when he posted the following touching image on Instagram last week:

While Rob's selfless gesture is truly touching, according to some sources Lamar is reluctant about the idea of his friend undergoing major surgery on his behalf. Hollywood Life has written an insider source informed them that:

"He wouldn’t want to put Rob and the rest of the Kardashian family through all that stress. If something were to go wrong with Rob’s surgery, that would be the end of Lamar as we know it! He couldn’t live with himself. He could never look Khloe or any of the Kardashian/Jenner women in the face. The buck stops with Lamar! He really feels he’s brought a lot of unwanted energy, stress and negativity into the family and while Rob’s gesture is beyond magical, Lamar doesn’t think he could ever take his kidney."

Only time will tell if Lamar will require a transplant, but it's reassuring to know he has such a stellar support system backing him up during these traumatic times.
